It's been a memorable 12 months since our last Hot List. The only thing predictable about the markets over the past year has been their unpredictability. But volatility can also provide windows of opportunity, and many on this year’s Hot List have excelled in this environment.
The 50 men and women who made the cut this year exert considerable influence on the financial planning industry. That includes advisors and executives, of course, but also regulators, educators and government ministers, past and present. The past year has been far from plain sailing for many on the list, but all are notable for their ability to navigate such stormy seas.
The industry is changing rapidly; those who can adapt best to new regulatory pressures and harness the constant upgrades in technology will be the ones who shape the future of wealth management. How different will next year’s Hot List look from this year’s selection? It’s an exciting thought.
